Said Alcon’s Sales Director, Jonathan Edwards: “The brake systems on most modern supercars are without doubt of a very high quality – stopping distances, brake feel a

and fade resistance are significantly better than on previous such cars.  The systems are, however, a compromise between cost, performance and refinement. The CCX range of products developed by Alcon takes things to another level and the leap in outright braking performance is a quantum one. If you want the ultimate performing brake, then the Alcon CCX system for the GT-R fits the bill perfectly, on road or track.”
